The re-launch of the website coincides with an increase in the number of Professional Registers available. These include a new BASIS Amenity Training Register for Amenity Advisers, Amenity Sprayer Operators, and others responsible for pesticide use in the amenity sector; and a new Nominated Storekeepers (NSK) Professional Register for those storing and supplying pesticides.
The BASIS website now offers quick access to the relevant professional register, types of courses available and lists of approved local trainers. For members and trainers, a secure log-in area provides quick and easy access to their records online. Trainers can upload new events and both trainers and examiners can access an additional secure resource area, for document downloads.
"In an increasingly digital age, our members need an effective online platform to support them," said BASIS managing director Rob Simpson. "The new website is truly comprehensive and has information for a wide range of audiences, from youngsters aspiring to a career in agronomy right through to experienced agronomists and trainers."
